Mind at Large is an interactive media art project that seeks to allow users to explore audiovisual composition through a gaming engine.
Our team, Immersive Audio-Vision, was comprised of students ranging from disciplines in Design and Digital Media, Design for Informatics and Sound Design— with supervision from University of Edinburgh PhD student Dara Etefaghi.
Immersive Audio Vision drew inspiration by the following quote from Aldous Huxley’s The Doors of Perception and developed this prototyped scene for the first submission of this project:
“The change which actually took place in that world was in no sense revolutionary. Half an hour after swallowing the drug I became aware of a slow dance of golden lights. A little later there were sumptuous red surfaces swelling and expanding from bright nodes of energy that vibrated with a continuously changing, patterned life. At another time the closing of my eyes revealed a complex of gray structures, within which pale bluish spheres kept emerging into intense solidity and, having emerged, would slide noiselessly upwards, out of sight.’
